For a minute there I was real concerned, what with the heading reference to New York. It's New York City was meant. But then they learn everything the hard way. A suffocating place led by a bigoted mayor, ever boasting while the city dies.
Funny thing is, they aren't mentioning death rates anymore. I'm still keeping a daily record, and the death rate is dropping even as the cases, which may or may not be confirmed, increase. Of course, because the CDC has added a list of symptoms to the original 3, we will find sickness being blamed on the Covid 19 version of coronavirus that isn't.

Maybe they were protesters taking a break. Some safe distances are more equal than others.
Maybe if another wacko enters a gun-free school zone to do harm, instead of calling police, the teachers will peacefully offer him a bowl of granola. After all, he just wants to be loved, and acting out by killing students is just a cry for help.
It's interesting how many things get blamed on a virus that has little to do with a virus and more to do with perceptions. Post traumatic stress? Over a virus that affects them so little? How? How about not filling them with irrational fear? Why not them play out in the fresh air sunshine, and be children?
The survey question was the wrong one to ask. It should have been, "Do you consider YOUR life as sacred, as having intrinsic value?" The results would have been different. The death culture has no problem killing people at either end of the age spectrum, but is itself fearful of death, since it does not believe life is created.

I don't know how others might find feel, Jim, but for me life is too short to waste any of it reading the Washington Post, or George Will. If I want to chew on slanted news, I can always tune in CNN or MSNBC for a quick bite.

FYI, he got the gay gene theory because he saw sheep that were gay. He then reasoned that if a sheep could be gay, it had to be genetic. But, he also said that even if someone is born with a gay gene, homosexuality was still a sin. Sorry for using the expression "gay" so often. It is simply the way the internet described his position.
He should have looked into it more, Frank. Animals are not "gay." They follow their mating instinct, and sometimes select whatever is nearby. Put a female in the pen, and suddenly the so called gay sheep isn't gay anymore. I would challenge Mohler to show a case of same sex animals mating for life. Btw, anyone else experienced a young dog attempting to mate with a human leg? Sorry, I know it's gross, but it doesn't make the dog a pervert of the inter species type, and demonstrates the point.

I talked with a deluded man today who is certain a French Revolution-style cataclysm is coming. All the masses of people's who have been held down are about to rise up and establish their own rule. He quoted the Constitution defined citizen responsibility to take charge if things go awry. Because we belong to Christ and not some Marxist cause, we're not in a comfortable place. May we witness fearlessly and pray earnestly anyway.
Those held down French Revolution people, not having the sense to establish liberty as a required policy, rather than a mere slogan, ended up with Napoleon. It wasn't an improvement in their lot.

I take it you ran out of recent news to comment on, and that's the reason you went back 10 years for this article? You must live a boring life, Jim. This article is so old, Obama was in his first term of installing left turn only signs in Washington.

Good for him! If he really does see we are at war with the devil for the soul of the nation, would that a few more politicians would see it as well. There is a spiritual battle going on all around us, Jim. For your sake, determine where you are in it.

How does a link to a Washington Post writer add credibility to an inside-out wrong idea, Jim? Are these right wingers burning down the country? Attacking statues of dead presidents? Maybe they own a brick manufacturing company? Oh well, I'm sure you will be able to find more cow flops to pitch. Your aim needs work, however.
Another proud bunch? A sexist one as well. Seems like the ones who are least sure of themselves or have an agenda, need a crutch called "pride". Maybe we will see LGBT history month next. Might as well embellish the fiction. Hmmm. What about a Wife-Beaters Pride Month? Or a Child Abandonment Pride Month? Bank Robbers History Month?
Humanity isn't going to end. Not by man-made global warming, not by a disease with a 99+% survivability rate, not by unregistered guns, not by anything. If they want to know more, there's a readily available book that pretty well describes how it all works out.
The Quiet Christian wrote: It sounds ridiculous but folks are afraid of death and have no concept of the Lord God Almighty, having suppressed that knowledge. It's yet another kind of a Tower of Babel, stating that we made ourselves and not the Lord. ---
True, QC. Sadly, fear of death is now so widespread that even some Christians climb aboard the fear train, as the recent months have shown.
